Scan Global Logistics expands in Africa

Scan Global Logistics has opened its second office in Kenya, with the coastal city of Mombasa serving as a gateway to East and Central Africa.

In collaboration with the existing Nairobi office, the dual representation will enable SGL to compete effectively with industry leaders and provide customers with competitive local and regional logistics solutions.

‘Mombasa serves as a critical logistics hub for Kenya and East and Central Africa as a whole,” said the Operations Manager of the Mombasa office, Michael Mnyubi. “From our own office, we can handle operations and inquiries directly without using agents, which means we can deliver improved services, efficient cargo handling and ensure timely clearance, all of which will enhance efficiency and save our customers both time and additional costs.’

The expansion into Kenya is part of SGL’s wider expansion strategy in Africa, which has included offices in Senegal, Mali, the Ivory Coast, Togo, Benin, and South Africa. However, the company sees great potential for growth in the entire region, particularly in Kenya.

“Mombasa’s strategic location positions us to effectively serve the promising markets in Eastern and Central Africa,” said SGL Kenya Managing Director, Duncan Wagura. “We look forward to further strengthening our presence in Kenya and Africa and providing local and global customers with comprehensive, efficient, end-to-end solutions.’
